The moment you arrive at camp, you are welcomed with open arms and become a part of the CSL family. We encourage our staff to embrace their individuality and be their truest self at camp. We want our staff to grow personally and professionally and give opportunities to do so. We are proud to be one of the top Jewish overnight camps in North America with regards to overall staff satisfaction, appreciation, training and feeling supported from start to finish. We value YOU, our staff, and taking care of you is a top priority. At CSL, we send people home better versions of themselves. This includes you!
